    Greeting all, For some reason, I have been believing most of the marine fish sold in the LFS are captive bred. Now I realized that I might be wrong about it. So how do I know if my yellow tang, yellow clown goby and firefish are captive bred or wild caught? Thank you in advanced!

    I am at a standstill with my reef tank. I presently have a yellow tang, bicolor angel, 2 ocellaris clownfish and a yellow watchman goby. Wanted to add a firefish and 3 blue green chromis but one of the chromis harassed all the others to death while in quarantine. I am returning the surviving...

    I'm in a highschool aquatics class and next semester we'll be getting our tanks, so I've been researching/planning about which fish me and my partner will be getting for the tank and the care they'll need. One fish I've looked at is the firefish/dartfish. Under their care it says that they...

    Hello, I have a 10 gallon nano with two false percula clowns, one cleaner shrimp, and some nice corals. I have had the tank for approximately 8 months now and all the water parameters are great along with the corals, clownfish, and shrimp. Yesterday, I bought a firefish from my local LFS and...

    Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone knows what this is about... As we all know, firefish have a long dorsal fin that they can erect or lay flat and every time i go near the tank they sort of flick the dorsal fin up and down in what looks like a warning to either predators or the sort. Is this a...

    Hey guys so i have had quite a few regular firefish but never a purple. My LFS got a purple in for me today and i just have some questions. Can i mix a purple with 2 regular firefish? I heard purples don't get along in pairs. But regular do well in odd amounts from my knowledge like owning 3...

    Hello fish friends, My 28G JBJ Nanocube completed her cycle over a week ago, and shortly thereafter went into a lovely diatom bloom (sarcasm... looks like poop). On Saturday evening I picked up my first inhabitants. I went with a pair of young false percula clownfish (1.5") and a sharknose goby...

    Hi, I have a nano reef that has a single clown. i'd like to add a second (I've read all about how to do that and hope to be successful). I've been told the yellow watchman would be a good third (and final) fish for this tank. Thing is...I LOVE firefish. I know they're timid and paranoid and...

    In the last 2 days my Firefish has been acting up. He has been sitting in the right side of the tank and hovering an inch above the sand. He used to swim around the tank and was very happy and cheerful. The only change to my tank is that i added a diamond goby last week. He doesnt seem to...

    So I had a clown and a firefish in my 14 biocube. They had been in the tank together for about a month and seemed fine. I then added a coral banded shrimp and abd shortly there after my firefish died. Figured it was just coincidence... But now my clown is also dead. He seems to have got pretty...

    I currently have a beautiful Green Mandarin in my 2 yo 250l tank. It has been with me for about 2 months now and is looking great. I don't want to upset it. Can I get some Firefish (thinking maybe Nemateleotris Helfrichi or decora or magnifica)? I'm think 3 or 4 of the one type. My hesitation is...

    I set up a 29 gallon a few weeks ago using live rock from my 110 that got a little out of hand with HA. I put new sand in though as it's hard to rid it of HA. I added my clown and remaining CUC two days after moving the rock over and have since added a (a week later) purple firefish. Both fish...

    After my last crash I decided to play everything extra safe and make sure I was very stable with everything. Been checking water parameters like crazy, been cleaning out filters every other day, RO/DI water only etc. Started with this: and unfortunately the black ocellaris ate it in about a...
